in the senate there as well because the house won't put anything up for a vote unless the senate acts. but mr. harry reid ask his vulnerable democrats to take a vote on an assault weapon's ban if they believe it won't pass the house. >> i know tomorrow we'll be taking up my resolution in support of gun violence prevention that includes taking up the assault weapons bans. so i think that the white house is ready, the senate is ready to act. they are going to i think start with what you may consider to be the low-hanging fruits the background checks, and limit on high capacity magazines and then take a look at senator feinstein's bill. but i think the senate will take this up in regular order, and this will only be successful if as the president has said the american people speak out and speak up. this is the slaughter of innocents. is our role as parents. they didn't think we could change drunk driving laws, but mothers against drunk drivers did. >> jennifer: and i think this is another reason this was so powerful. one of the other things christine you mentioned that the

that mr. harry reid, as well as nancy pelosi on board with the president, so the key question tonight is the democrats who talk about things in the senate, if we hear anything from the speakers about the deal that is now emerging in the senate. reporter: we have yet to hear from the speaker's office. but one of the final hangups is getting all the democrats on board with us. mitch mcconnell knows where speaker john boehner is on this issue. they remained in contact throughout these negotiations birdseed can imagine that speaker boehner will come out as possibly as early as tonight with a statement of support. he has yet to get any information on. adam: apparently a spokesperson for the speaker saying that this is all joe biden and mitch mcconnell. no context as whether that's a compliment or insult, but potentially the deal which you have been expressing all day long. you are the one who will wrote just before 9:00 p.m. that a gop aide said that this was all done. just to wrap up with you before before we sign off one more time, no word yet from the vice president, but reporters are w
meeting of each month recognizing a few of our outstanding employees. and first i'd like to ask mr. vince harris who leads our capital projects division to come forward with chu win chee. she is one of our talented capital engineers. she's been with the agency over 15 years. always goes beyond the call of duty to solve any project problems, address project concerns and work effectively with the project team. department clients, consult apartments and the public. she's been a project engineer for the [speaker not understood] transportation radio project which is a very complicated design/build project, very significant, $100 million project that we're currently undertaking to modernize our whole communications system throughout muni. she's involved in developing the rfp, negotiating with the contract, reviewing design and is now working with us and the transit staff and others to implement. previously she was involved with the cable street, cable car infrastructure, the california street cable car infrastructure improvement project. a number of other projects, particularly in the electric
with a $50,000 bill, their part of the u.s. debt. mr. speaker, that's reckless. mr. harris: but there's something even more reckless. the only way to solve these problems is with a budget. every house knows it. every business knows it. almost every government knows it but not the u.s. senate, which hasn't passed a budget for four years. tomorrow the house will take up house resolution 325, and this bill will force the u.s. senate to finally pass ar budget in order to increase our debt ceiling. the time is now. the senate has to act. i yield back the balance of my time. the speaker pro tempore: for what purpose does the gentleman from texas seek recognition? >> mr. speaker, i ask unanimous consent to address the house for one minute and address the r one minute and revise and extend my remarks. the speaker pro tempore: without objection, the gentleman is recognized. for one minute. >> mr. speaker, on january 28, 1986, the space shuttle challenger broke apart 73 seconds after launch. the whole world cried watching challenger tumble back to earth knowing that seven brave americans had lo
much. in today's "the wall street journal," there is an editorial written by mr. harris that breaks the $60 billion down for sandy relief into understandable numbers. our budget deficits, over $16 trillion at this current time. it should be broken down into dollars. $1 trillion is 1,000 billion. guest: the bottom line is there is a big problem. she is making these numbers understandable. many years back, a senator said something about the idea about $1.2 and $1.3 and they were talking about billions. the numbers get so vague. this is the real number and these are real big problems. as big as these numbers are, it t small changes now that changes the trajectory. i think that is why the current elected officials have an obligation to deal with these issues. they should be focusing on the agenda. that makes things easier for growing. host: a call from michigan. good morning. caller: he is familiar with my territory. you are talking about pension cuts and cuts in wages. tell the viewers what severance package you received from the state of michigan when you left the governorship. i and

his imperious stance, if you will. senator harry reid reportedly warned mr. obama is refusal to negotiate on the debt limit and the sequester could be a strategic bluner. nancy pelosi making it clear that the democratic priorities called for even higher tax hikes. >> i don't think that democrats are saying that we aren't having spending cuts. we have agreed to over a trillion dollars in cuts in the budget control act. so we all know how we proceed has to be in three parts. revenue and growth to bring money into the treasury in cuts in establishing our priorities in a way that does not harm her future. >> our congressman joins us tonight to discuss the battles over the debt and gun control and immigration and whether the republicans have the guts and will to fight this president on those issues. the unemployment rate remaining at. washington talking about everything right now but jobs. we have a guest to talk about jobs coming out. and new york's putnam county. publishing the names and locations of gun owners. ishe right to privacy overridden by a newspaper's ideology? will ta

one of the problems here, and i think what republicans are going to say going forward, is mr. president, you and harry reid go forward. we've passed three budgets. we've done one every year. it's time for you to show your hand and tell us what you want to do. the frustration i have with you and mohamed is you talk about how, you know, we have this gridlock and that, you know, the republicans aren't being reasonable. but isn't it time for the democrats to say what they want to cut? >> mohamed, let me ask you this. as you look at evaluating people's creditworthiness, is this absence of ooh budget, does that come into the equation when looking at the united states' creditworthiness and its investment climate? >> yes, and for many reasons. first, an annual budget is the most basic element of economic governance. a family knows that. you know, your annual budget is really important. and if you have a country and as maya said the most powerful country in the world who can't even do, that it points to dysfunction. second, the more we focus on the fiscal issue, the more we get obsess
